Dot Aht is a nascent movement to bring "street art" to the neighborhood:
... It is part of an effort to put Dorchester on the cover of the Globe for its art and not for its crime. ...
Via Mike Mennonno.
This makes me long for the "Santa is Real" stencils that were all over the city for a while a few years ago.

Why oh why did they use Flash?
IANAL, but if I were one I would be jumping in here. Not that it's a bad idea to put Dorchester on the front page of the Globe for its art rather than its crime; clearly that's a good idea! And the name is cute. But the fake Dorchester accent that inspires the humorous title of Dot Aht seems to me to infringe on a prominent, long-standing organization called Dot Art, officially the Dorchester Community Center for the Visual Arts (http://blog.dotart.org/about_us). Good fodder for the intellectual property attorneys, I guess, unless Dot Art has a sense of humor about the likely confusion.
